Ahead of this summer's Falmouth - Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta, the Royal Borough of Greenwich have teamed up with the AHOY Centre to offer local young people a great opportunity to try sailing for free.
If you're thinking about signing up to sail in the regatta but are still unsure, the free sessions during the Easter school holidays are the ideal chance to try out sailing beforehand. You can even get your official RYA (Royal Yachting Association) sailing qualification during the programme.
The sessions are open to residents aged 15 to 24 years old and are led by qualified instructors at the AHOY Centre on the Thames.

The Tall Ships Regatta comes to Royal Greenwich from 5 to 9 September 2014, and people of all ages can sign up now to sail from Falmouth to Greenwich aboard one of the magnificent ships. No previous experience is required.
